White Sheep

Drybot, wetbot, elevator, crane;
simeye, simear, when the future came.
Simple to imagine, difficult to bide;
harbingers of hopefulness can take you for a ride.

Squarerule, slide rule, calculator, scale;
dead-weight, paperweight, holding down the tale.
Talk on open wires, feel in open air;
promises of hopefulness will make you want to care.

Yes sir, no sir, 1984;
poly-sci, politics, life never like before.
Possible conditions, scenarios of hate;
contemplating hopefulness can never come too late.
